A Thousand Thanks, and Farewell to Penn!

Author: Mari Meyer, GED ’12

WE DID IT!!!  We graduated! We rented our gowns (and returned our gowns); we collected our “diplomas” and strutted our stuff down Locust Walk. All I can say is, it feels SO GOOD!

Of course I couldn’t have made it to this point in one piece without the incredible support and love from family, friends, faculty and the one of a kind colleagues I’ve met here at Sweeten Alumni House. I will sincerely miss you all, but now that I’m an alumna, you’re stuck with me for good!

My big brother helping me with my hood.

My internal monologue: “Don’t trip. Don’t trip. Don’t trip…”

Diplomas in hand…

My dad was so proud and he wanted to make sure everyone knew it. Yep, that was me at age 4.

The most memorable walk of my life.

The after-party.
